I'm assuming you mean a wrt54g, if that's the case look on the bottom of the router and see what version it is. If you have a ver. 1, 2, 3, or 4 then you don't need an extender. you can flash a 3rd party firmware into that router and turn it into a super router. If you are interested, then leave a comment and i will tell you how to do this. An extender will just cut your broadband speed in half so I would avoid that if possible. Let me know.

This is too involved to just post your router settings. I would recommend reading up on how to "cascade" your router or to make your Modem/Router act as a bridge.

The dlink will need to have its DNS disabled and have the Linksys do the DNS. Then the LInksys will be using the Dlink as its host. you may be better off seeing if you can make the dlink run in Gateway mode instead of router mode.

Then see how to implement the cascading router with your particular situation and WAN IP.

Dlink dap 1522

I think I was having a similar problem with my DAP-1522 ... FW Version 1.10 being used as an access point. I recently discovered that I was not able to connect to the configuration pages using a web browser by typing in it's IP address (192.168.0.50). When I originally set this up device up on my network, it worked just fine, but at some point in time, it stopped working. My solution to this problem was to set the switch on the back of the 1522 from Auto to AP, then re-boot the DAP-1522 by removing power, waiting 10 seconds, then plugging power back in. Once the AP re-booted, I was then able to access the configuration login page by typing 192.168.0.50 into my browser. My DAP-1522 access point is connected via port 1 to my D-link router, a DGL-4100, via a DGS-2208, 8 port gigabit switch. Hope this helps!

WRP 400 Inbound call issue

This could be due to the fact the when using multiple routers you need to let the main router know the routes into the second router.

I do have a question as to why you would use the second router and not the dlink?

I would suggest dropping the dlink router/modem and get your ISP to send you just a modem and then use the linksys. Or of course don't use the linksys and just use the dlink.

Dlink di-524 connect to RV042

Hi.

You need to cascade the Dlink wireless router to your RV042.

Suppose your RV042 has a default IP Address of 192.168.1.1, and the DLINK IP uses 192.168.0.1. Your Physical connection is from the regular port of the RV042 going to the WAN/Internet Port of the DLink wireless router.

Once you do that, your Dlink router should automatically obtain an IP from the main router. If it did, configure your wireless settings and you should be able to connect via wireless.

This is just one way to cascade your router to another router.
